My Daddies and Me

“Dear Pump Station,

I’m just a tiny baby, but I heard my two daddies talking to their mommy friend while they thought I was napping.  She was telling them all about the cool and helpful things she’s been learning in her mommy and me class.  I know they don’t want to be the only daddies in a mommy and me class, but – between you and me -- I really think they could use a few tips!  Let’s face it – they really love me, but they’re new to this daddy thing and it would be great for them to have a little help and support.  I think they would really like to have other daddies to hang out with and talk about all the changes and craziness I have apparently brought into their lives!” 

Hey, baby – good news for you and your daddies! The Wright Parent and Me groups at The Pump Station & Nurtury™ hears you and is offering a brand new class for your family. Our new My Daddies and Me Group is for families just like yours. Your daddies will get all the helpful, practical, mindful information The Wright Parent and Me Groups provide, plus your daddies will find the unique support and shared experiences of other two dad families.   We hope you’ll join us for this first-of-its kind parenting class designed especially for you!
